Spending time in the hospital can be a trying experience for anyone, but it’s especially difficult for an active child. Levine Children’s Hospital, in Charlotte, NC, has many ways to keep children engaged and entertained during their visit.
There’s always something fun going on at Levine Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the kindness of individuals and organizations in our community, we often have special group visits and entertainment to provide some fun and help pass the time in the hospital. These activities vary by day, so ask your nurse or child life specialist for the latest hospital happenings. If you would like to visit patients or put on a performance, read our guidelines and submit a request.
Everyone knows that music has healing properties. It can perk you up when you’re feeling low or soothe you when you’re anxious. At Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC, we use music therapy as part of the overall healing process.
Our board-certified music therapist uses several therapies with patients and their families. Older kids can participate in the lyric analysis, talking about the meanings of songs, smaller kids are often calmed by hearing a familiar song from home and everyone can pick up an instrument and express their feelings by creating their own music.
